Of course they announce a new Gundam Breaker and not an entirely new console game.

At least GB is coming to the West. Hope it aint download only.

Decided to go back to SFV since I probably won't be getting DBZ for a while. Had some spare wallet money so I picked up the season 2 character pass for $30 before bed last night. 

 

Updated to Arcade Edition just now and the S2 pass gets a price cut to $20. I hate myself.

FFXV is a dumpster fire I wanted to get around to playing eventually. Bought it shortly after launch with the season pass because my now closed Best Buy had that beanie hat bundle on clearance. Figured I would play it after some patching and they three dlc stories were released to get the "complete" experience vs. replaying the thing multiple times. Now I read they are releasing more stuff to it in a royal edition as well as all but confirming a season 2 pass for more stuff. Good on them for including the season pass content in the royal edition but sucks for those who bought the game and s:p as it will still be another $20 for them. At this rate, I'll give it a shot as soon as Star Citizens is in release candidate state.

I'm going to pass on FF15 entirely because the DLC episode aren't incorporated into the campaign it seems, even on this new release. Which is significant because they give you an alternate ending. I don't know why they don't do it.

I won't buy FFXV again unless it has an alternate ending.

 

Yeah, I know Episode Ignis has one (and I actually like it better than the original btw) but I want one not based on a side story that everyone immediately dismisses as non-canon.

Is anyone even still playing this? Every time I see something new about it, I'm reminded about how disappointing and awful the game was. Still baffled by all the high review scores it got when it came out. At least PC players can now experience this garbage in 4K.

I played the game shortly after release and didn't like it.

 

With each DLC, they make some good improvements. The character DLCs are legitimately good (minus Prompto's snowmobile shit). The boss fights are really fun and provide a good challenge. I haven't gotten around to Ignus or Comrades yet, but they're on my shortlist. They'll never fix the large, dead open world though. Maybe I have a skewed opinion, but I think it's inherent to most open world games (I felt the same way about BotW).

 

I understand development cycle times and that they needed to put something out after so many years in development, but at the very least I wish they would've implemented switching characters in the original (base) release. The game as it stands now is much better than it was on release, but it's still my second least favorite FF game out of the seven I've played.

So has there been clarification on what the $20 consists of? Because if it's just the new content and I still have to buy the season pass then it'll be cheaper to just buy the royal edition... Which I'll wait until it's on sale and then yeah. But if they're making the season pass part of that $20 upgrade then I will absolutely bite on that.

Unlike seemingly most people here, I really thoroughly enjoyed FFXV. I thought the characters were all great, really well written and felt like a true group of friends. The overarching story could have been better but overall I thought it was a really solid entry (I played through the story post patches and chapter 13 fix). Have wanted to go back for the episodes but have been waiting for something like this. Some of the new features seem pretty cool as well. Monster truck and boat? Yes please.

From what it seems, the $20 should just be the new stuff without the season pass content.  It would be stupid to include it since the season pass alone is $25.  So it would probably be in your best interest to just buy the royal edition. 

 

However for a sucker like me that bought the Ultimate, Deluxe, and season pass, yea, I probably have to purchase it separately.

 

While I have yet to play the actual game (minus the Ass Creed and Moogle/Chocobo events), it was enjoyable for me.  There's always a love/hate relationship with these games.  Kind of like the FFXIII series.  Generally speaking, you either liked it or you don't.

Here is the full list of features, via Square Enix:

  • Expanded Map: Insomnia City Ruins – all-new side quests and enemies such as Cerberus and Omega will be available through the expanded map of the Crown City of Insomnia. Players will also take on the Rulers of Yore.
  • A fully-controllable Royal Vessel boat, expanding the world of Eos and allowing players to explore the area between Cape Caem and Altissia. Players will also be able to fish aboard the vessel and discover new fishes and dishes.
  • A new accessory that can activate the new action “Armiger Unleashed” – players will be able to unleash powerful attacks while the Armiger is summoned. After collecting all of the royal arms, players will be able to find an accessory in an unidentified part of the world, enabling access to Armiger Unleashed.
  • A new first-person camera mode, allowing players to experience the game from Noctis’ perspective.
  • More than a dozen pieces of downloadable content including weapons, Regalia car skins and item sets
  • All season pass content including Episode Gladiolus, Episode Prompto, Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades, and Episode Ignis
  • Archive – players can review the “Cosmogony” stories scattered throughout the Final Fantasy XV world. Additional local myths and legends will also be placed in various new locations, allowing players to obtain more information about the world.
  • Quest to obtain and Strengthen Regalia Type-D
  • New Trophies
  • The Final Fantasy XV base game

Read more at https://gematsu.com/...ZxERDVHlhSqz.99

 

So in short if you bought the season pass, joke's on you as it will still run $20. If you did not buy the season pass... well it is still $20 to get the upgrade for the base game.

Yeah I agree, the story/ending was kinda disappointing to me. I mean I appreciate them doing a lot to fix the mundane gameplay, which was a huge complaint, and it seems they've added a lot of variety now which is nice. 

 

But unless a certain event doesn't happen after chapter 9, I can't see myself going back to the same story. If they wind up going into depth on the more interesting side character's backstories, like they said they would do for Aranea, then I'll reconsider it.

 

I was also one of the ones to spend over $300 on FFXV UCE, my most expensive game bought to date.

Ah yes I see that now and posts at other places seem to say it is just an upgrade with the new content, though even that seems to be conflicting on how much depending on where you go. Soooo I guess the only constant is the $20 and thanks for supporting this half finished game. It also seems to not make much sense if the Royal edition costs $50 whole banana but then have folks with the regular edition, the season pass and R:E upgrade as stand alone updates. In short... they're pulling an Ubisoft with how they are handling this update and pricing strategy. 

 

Playing FF-XII: Zodiac Age has reminded me of what I used to enjoy about FF games and how far things went off course with the whole Crystal Novalis nonsense. I just hope FF XVI is a complete game with coherent in game story telling, a cast that does not look like a reject boy band troupe or anything close to resembling Lighting, and have mostly symmetrical clothes. I would also settle for DLC side stuff if the actually integrate it into the main game. So.... pretty much Bravely Default without the second act.

I'm guessing maybe motion controls for Switch and hopefully a performance/visual delta that isn't too huge

Seems like Nintendo is going to announce something at 5PM Eastern today during their usual Direct time. Kind of surprised nobody here has mentioned it yet. A bit weird that it has only been mentioned on the UK (and JP) site so far though.

 

Well, in some way or another, good or bad. Wonder if it'll be something digital that they'll end up killing off after a few years like quite a few other things they've done before.
